Georgetown house description

In addition to all the amenities that can be found throughout the beach community you will find many happy times at our beach house. There are 6 bedrooms (not including the owner's quarters). There are two on the main living floor. The beach side bedroom has a queen size bed and a private bath. the front bedroom has a double and a single bed and a private shower bath. Upstairs there are four beach side bedrooms that all have private baths and a door to the outside balcony overlooking the deck and beach. the upstairs north bedroom has a queen bed and a single sleeper couch. This suite is also connected to a separate reading TV room that has a single sleeper couch. The middle north bedroom has a full size and a twin bed. the middle south bedroom has two twin beds. The south bedroom has a queen bed.
Thirty-two years ago, my wife and I built this beach house on the secluded beach of DeBordieu, We have seen turtles hatching, birds migrating by the thousands, calm seas and hurricanes. We have walked the pristine beach with no other soul in sight. There have been breathtaking sunrises and full moons that cannot be described, only witnessed and felt. The soft sound of the waves breaking on the beach has dissipated the stress of work, and when the water becomes angry and the storms and lightning display their fireworks, there is an excitement that revitalizes the spirit. We have found something primeval about the coast and our beach house that not only attracts the physical but also the inner spirit. We hope you also will find excitement and solace here.

IT IS IMPORTANT TO NOTE !! Because we are located on the beachfront - on the dunes, and we have a seawall at the front of the dunes and normally have steps going down to the beach. The winter of 2013 has caused serious erosion at DeBordieu and we try but cannot promise that the steps will always be available in front of our house. There are steps 50 feet to the north of our house and the beach access is always available from our front entrance and a few yards to the south where you can gain access to the beach at all tides (see map). Many of our guests find that this is not an inconvenience, but a positive, since they can fish from the seawall at high tides. Also, this is a time when everyone can come off of the beach and bond with their family and friends. We hope you can find this time and tide a positive also.

There are many gated communities along the Carolina coast, but without a question the “best kept secret” is DeBordieu Colony. Located just four miles north of historic Georgetown and eight miles south of Pawleys Island, DeBordieu is the southernmost beach community of the Grand Strand. Not only is the community a vacation paradise, but also a wildlife and nature treasure. As you enter the security gate you will travel several miles through a forest filled with deer, beaver, wild turkey, rabbits and other protected creatures. Before you reach the marsh that separates the beach community from the mainland, there is an excellent tennis facility on the right and a championship Pete Dye designed golf course on the left.
PLEASE NOTE: From May 27th to September 15, 2014, the Golf course will be undergoing a renovation and will be closed to play. The DeBordieu Golf Staff are making special arrangements for our rental guests to play other courses in the area. Contact them at 843-527-6000 for help in getting tee times at special rates. Please give them plenty of advance notice.

                              DeBordieu Colony is located just 35 miles south of Myrtle beach if the Children need to visit an amusement park, and only four miles north of historic Georgetown and 65 miles north of Charleston where you will find lots of antiques and history. Don't forget to visit Beautiful Brookgreen Gardens just 15 miles north of DeBordieu. Adjoining our Colony is the Belle Baruch Institute where nature programs are available for visitors. The general public is welcome and there are a variety of programs for all ages. These include informal seminars presented by Baruch scientists where citizens learn about current research activities, and short courses for families and children. Other education experiences for the public include seasonal explorations of the salt marsh, bird walks and open houses of the Baruch Marine Lab. Schedules of education activities are produced three times a year and cover the periods: September-December, January-May and June-August. http://links.baruch.sc.edu/vi

                              Year Purchased: 1979

                              About the owner: My wife and I owned a chain of photographic stores and an audiovisual design and sales company in South Carolina. We were blessed enough to have children and a nice home on a farm near Columbia, SC, where my daughter and son-in-law have horses and cats. We have a miniature poodle (Sunny) that thinks she's a large pit bull. We not only enjoy our farm, but a small lake house and of course the beach. I am a Rotarian and a volunteer business counselor with the SCORE organization. We are both involved with our church and community. I enjoy golf, genealogy, art, woodworking, boating, work around the farm, fish and release, and good friends. On evenings I particularly enjoy sitting on our porch with my wife and a glass of wine.

                              Why the Owner Chose Georgetown:
                              When my wife and I were at a business conference at a beach near DeBordieu in 1977, we enjoyed the sound of the waves strumming on the shore so much that we decided to search for a place to build a beach house. After a number of visits to different beach locations we happened upon the DeBordieu development. It was in the early stages of being developed and was still in a wild state with wildlife everywhere and dirt roads to the south beach. After being blocked on 'Old Carriage Road' by a large deer, we decided this was the place we were looking for. We started construction in 1978 and had our first stay in our new home in the Fall of 1979. After hurricane Hugo we did a great deal of rebuilding and remodeling. Of course, with a beach house this is an on going pleasure. We also like to explore the historic towns of Georgetown and Charleston. In Georgetown we like to dine at several fine restaurants. Our favorite is the River Room on Front street in Georgetown.

                              The Unique Benefits at this House:
                              Although, most of our guests enjoy the beach in the summer, we find that each season has it's own uniqueness. We always enjoy seeing the birds migrating in the spring and fall, the full moons rising, the glow and reflection of the sunsets, shrimp boats working, pelicans and osprey fishing, walking the beach with our poodle and being careful to pickup poop, all these things and best of all just being still and absorbing the beauty and wonder of nature.
